Chernobog

Another Supreme finished (my 140th painted Pulp City mini!), and this one has taken much longer than planned. I started painting this alt-Perun as Chernobog during the Cold war Kickstarter campaign, but then he got sidelined unfortunately. With some renewed painting resolve in July I finally managed to tackle him properly and that gives my first Supreme in readiness for the arrival of the Red Republik. Even better, the alt-card for Chernobog (which we unlocked as a special Stretch Goal during the campaign) allows him to work as a Forgotten as well, giving this mighty godling somewhat divided allegiances.

Chernobog returned to the mortal realm when he heeded a summons from the Red Republik using an imprisoned Perun. Chernobog answered the call, freeing his ‘brother’ as he arrived, while he listened to another voice, whispering he should bide his time with the Red Republik until the time was right to claim his rightful place in the Forgotten.

Just as Perun can be to Hero, Nature and Supreme Alliance Teams, Chernobog can be a very powerful model for Villain, Forgotten and Red Republik Teams bringing hard-hitting close combat, decent ranged attack at standard AP and an area effect ability all in one package, all backed up by bonuses from Flight and his Fire and Darkness Elements. He is vulnerable on Agility, so is ripe pickings for long-range types like Gentleman.

Painting Chernobog gets me a step closer to this year's planned goal, which I still hope to exceed. A couple more painted minis and I will match what I wanted, so hopefully I will get there sooner than later!

  1. Marvellous looking stuff PulpCitizen. I have a few "Pulp City" minis ready to be painted, but can never seem to find the time to get going on them. Sadly I simply make do looking at your terrific models instead :-)

  2. Great stuff, one of my favourite PC sculpts and the alt colour scheme does do his new eveil status justice. I need to get that alt card now so I can use him like this too!

  3. I can't wait to get the alt card and get working on the stuff from the Kickstarter. I love the idea of a Perun / Chernobog mirror match!

    Great paint work as usual.

    1. Thanks Obsidian3D. :)

      The mirror brothers are arguably two of the most powerful Supremes, so i think any game will enjoy seeing both matched against each other. :)

  4. Wonderful work on one of the more iconic Pulp City miniatures.
    I like the way some Heroes/villains have received an almost second identity during the KS, it calls for some alternate colour schemes, Perun/Chernobog being the foremost.

    1. Thanks very much Wouter. :)

      It is useful for us to add to the narrative in different ways like this and we may have a few more up our sleeves in the future; not many but enough to keep things interesting as individual character narratives evolve. :)
